Regardless of if you are ramping up for the holiday selling season or are starting to look at the last year in review, events like Small Business SaturdayTM and Global Entrepreneurship Week help connect you to your customers, community, and fellow business owners.

 

Small Business SaturdayTM was first observed in 2010, as the Saturday after Thanksgiving in the United States. Designed to be a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business SaturdayTM encourages shoppers to turn around and stay in town – spending their holiday gift dollars at the brick and mortar businesses in their community.
